Signing a player to an extension and then trading them 12 months later is a good way to ensure no player ever signs an extension with you again.

So then is it ok if we wait 2 years and hope Polanco still has some value?

Still has some value?
Where is this coming from?

Polanco is 26, and just put up a 6 WAR season with MVP votes.

And not to mention that he led the Twins' position players in WAR last season...

Do you want to sign good players in the future?

 

This isn't the stock market, human beings are involved and risk is taken by both sides.

Not only that, but a player of Polanco's performance, at his age and contract is every team's dream.
I don't understand how this is even a discussion, barring a complete rebuild.

That's why I said it's not the stock market.

 

Some fans view a player contract that's a net positive right now as something that should be traded so that the team can attain... another... net positive asset... in the... future...

 

Sorry, that's where I always get lost in this conversation.

Ok, that at least makes some sense, though I still disagree with that poster.
I read it as him saying that Polanco isn't very good and we should trade him before everyone else realizes it.

It’s possible I misunderstood as well. I guess it never occurred to me that people believe Polanco isn’t good.
